Advertisement

Samsung will definitely be the showstopper in a couple of days. The company has already unveiled its next-gen flagship Exynos 2100 SoC. The next stop is the Galaxy S21 series consisting of Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+, and Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G smartphones. Samsung has already confirmed an Unpacked event on January 14 at 10 AM EST/8.30 PM IST/11 PM Beijing Time. Ahead of the event, let’s look at the devices’ Expected Specs and Price.

Galaxy S21 Series- What is Changing?

So far, from the leaked reports, we can spot three major changes with the Galaxy S21 series: Plastic Build on the Vanilla Galaxy S21, Revamped Camera layout, and S-Pen support on the S21 Ultra. Rest assured, the entire series will probably carry over the legacy of premium flagships with Exynos 2100(Rest of the World)/Snapdragon 888(US, China) chipsets, high-performance LPDDR5 RAM, UFS 3.1 storage.

At the front, there will be a centered punch-hole display(Infinity-O) that could be protected by Corning Gorilla Glass Victus. However, you get to lose a few perks like a MicroSD slot(except for the Ultra), in-box Adapter, and earphones. That said, you can also look at the official wallpapers, video teasers, cases(back covers), and the leaked Over The Horizon Theme of the upcoming series.
